this. the same kind of reaction we're seeing from john mccain because he also is close with chris stevens but he's handling it in a very different kind of way because he's -- he wants -- he's the question asker and hillary clinton is the person who just, you know, again, bears that responsibility. it is clearly weighing very heavily on her. >> secretary of state hillary clinton has taken her seat before the house foreign affairs committee. but we do now have bob bear, the former middle east field officer with us. i wanted to ask you, when do you make of the fact that it has been almost four months, actually over four months and we still don't have anybody in custody responsible for the attack in benghazi. is this a failure of intelligence gathering, a failure of the government in libya to cooperate? what are you hearing? >> well, i think it falls on the shoulders of the libyans to find these people. libya is a chaotic country right now. the attack on algeria, libya played some part -- not at the state, but groups in libya. it is hard to find people when there is no central authori
